Title: ADJUSTABLE LASER MEASURING SYSTEM FOR JOINTS OF PIPES
Abstract:
An adjustable stabilized laser measuring system for continuous measurement of at least one join of pipe being inserted into or removed from a wellbore can have a laser housing with a laser surface velocini eter. The laser housing with a laser arm can be connected to a support member with an upper mounting member and an upper rubber pipe wiper and a lower plate with a lower rubber pipe wiper. The laser surface velocimeter can communicate via a network to a computer processor and data storage for measuring pipe joint length in real time. A winch can adjustably connect to the support member to secure the adjustable stabilized laser measuring system on top of pipe slips, The laser beam can be used to detect and calculate length and quantity of joints of pipe moving past the laser beam transmitting the information to the computer processor real time.
